So simple, yet so elegant. Use one large vase or bowl–or a collection of smaller ones–and some inexpensive beads and ornaments, and you can pull together something beautiful for your table.
Depending on whether you like a colorful display or a more understated one, choose your embellishments and throw them in a glass. It doesn't have to be a fancy arrangement, and you don't have to fill the vessel to the top. If using several smaller receptacles, vary the sizes and shapes to create more interest. Fill them all at different levels to allow the eye to move across the display and take it all in. As you entertain this holiday season, stagger some pieces around your holiday buffet table to dress it up a bit.
If you decide to use a large vase or bowl (a trifle bowl would work well), think about adding some LED string lights inside the bowl to give it some extra sparkle. Sprinkle a few extra beads or ornaments, or use some twigs or sprigs of pine around the arrangement to add yet another seasonal touch.
